Just for the record, I did not leave 'Participant' as my name, and I was unable to attend. There was no presentation attached.
IBM Marketing at work.
very embarrassing indeed - especially the error message.
While the mobile browser is might not be supported, there is a SmartCloud App for conferencing. Unfortunately I don't see that advice in the error message / browser check results :-/
PS: Agreed, installing an App might not be a solution for attending an IBM conference once. Still it is an option...
Installed the IBM app. Filled out the profile. Cannot get from my invitation to the app.
MobileFirst... so long as it's OUR mobile, not someone else's...
I asked for the meeting number. Guess what ... App cannot load the meeting. FUBAR.
"Full Mobile Support" is a PowerPoint bullet, it don't have have to be actually true.
Let's be honest here. Who could possibly expect somebody to watch a webcast on an iPad? That's ridiculous, right?
Completely ridiculous... There's no market for those iThings... Ballmer said so.
Most IBM-organised webcasts do not work with the iOS app. And just don't get me started with trying to join them from a Mac...
I wonder whether any IBMers ever use external links/apps to join these webcasts, or if they ever try competitive services such as Webex or GoToMeeting. If they did, they'd know that SmartCloud Meetings are anything but 'Exceptional'...
Worse is that some of the canned IBM tweets promoting the event were posted *after* the event concluded. Nice topic, but in business, "Execution is everything."
IBM is far from alone in this. Ever tried joining a Teamstudio webinar on Mobile development on a mobile device? They use a version of Cisco WebEx that is not compatible with mobile devices. FUBAR indeed.
'IBM Marketing'? You'll be telling us that Unicorns exist next.. ;)
I have one once been able to use the mobile SmartCloud or Sametime Meeting apps to connect to a meeting on the iPad. Every other time it is the actual computer
Volker: thank you for your candid feedback and sorry for the less-than-stellar experience you had with the January 6 webcast.
I've forwarded this blog post to the Support team at the Social Business User Group who hosted the webcast on behalf of IBM. We'll try to understand what happened and see how we can significantly improve the experience. In the meantime, we hope you will be able to watch the replay on demand on the SBUG here: http://bit.ly/1fx2BFB
Part of the issue appears (by looking at the conferenceservers.com URL) that a back-level meetings service was used for this particular webcast, and not the new SmartCloud Meetings service that has been available in SmartCloud since late last year.
Well, I tried again: http://vowe.net/archives/014221.html
